Eduardo/Mark, Eduardo tries to apologize

(Anonymous)
Mark is usually portrayed as the asshole who hurt Wardo, and Wardo as the victim who needs apology. I want a fic where Eduardo realizes that he wasn't really the saint he thought himself to be - that he didn't listen to Mark's plans, that freezing the account was maybe a little bit selfish and a whole lot childish, that maybe he - to a point - provoked Mark to think Eduardo was unreliable and, in effect, push him out of his budding company. Maybe Eduardo realizes all that when, at some event, he sees Chris and Dustin hovering around Mark protectively and glaring at Eduardo to stay away. Eduardo feels guilty and tries to apologize, but will Mark accept the apology? Happy ending appreciated.

It's more than okay with me! I've given up hope of getting even one fill for this, and now I'll have two :D

[Fill 1] Again (1/2)

Most days he’s fine, happy even.

He lives in Singapore, where the city is boisterous and bright and at its heart, filled with ancient traditions and constant activity. The culture is completely different than what he was used to in America.

It’s a good thing.

He works as a successful business investor, funding start-up companies, for apps like Denso and Huntsville. He likes his work. It gives him challenge and purpose.

He has work friends, contacts that he’s in touch with. They usually go out for drinks from time to time if he’s up for it.

He talks to his mae over the phone two times a week and he’s learned to keep cold politeness with his pa on rare occasions that they do speak. He has long accepted his pa’s disappointment in who is and given up in trying to please him.

He has his favorite hobbies. He loves the weather, analyzing and tracking the changes on charts he gets his eager hands on, keeps being amazed at how intricate and unpredictable the patterns are. He’s also started lightly running every morning; feeling relaxed moving his muscles and having the sun warms his skin.

He’s happy. He likes to believe that. Happiness is a state of being and he has the essential things needed to be happy.

He’s doing alright.

Sometimes, he gets passing thoughts when he’s using his laptop, seeing the headlines of Facebook on internet articles. Then, he’s quickly nostalgic about his Harvard days and beneath his eyelids, he remembers a sharp mind, steel blue eyes, a hunched gait and the quiet, concise taps of a keyboard in the background.

If he allows himself to dwell, there’s a persistent ache that’s attached to his musings. His chest caves in regret on how their friendship ended. Things between Mark and him weren’t supposed to go that way.

It took him a while but once he got over the deep hurt and the paralyzing anger, he saw how his behaviors were poor as well, finally realized his part in the blame. It wasn’t fair of him to think Mark was all at fault.

He wishes he could fix things.

The thought drives him to accept a Facebook invitation to one of its monthly meetings. For years, every time the mailed arrived, the reminder went ignored and buried within the drawers of his cabinet. In most cases, he chose to send a proxy to attend the meetings in his place, not wanting to deal with past bad business decisions and phantom twinges that were more than friendship.

Now, he feels like there should be a resolve. Maybe he might be able to get Mark back, the only person he's ever truly wanted.

[Fill 1] Again (2/2)

-

So he flies to California and glances at the building that contains two unforgettable memories for him; it’s too wrapped around heartbreak, rage, and disappointment.

He steps foot inside and tries to calm his breathing. He can do this.

When he’s in a large room filled with Facebook investors and important people, he searches the place for a familiar face with prominent cheek bones and a mob of light brown curls and instead sees Chris with a stilted, polite smile and Dustin with a worried expression. Both are hovering protectively close to the figure in the middle.

He makes his way towards the three of them anyway.

“Mark,” he says.

“Eduardo,” Mark replies, lips pressed in a line.


He helplessly looks at Chris and Dustin. “I’m not trying to cause trouble,” he addresses them, placing his hand forward.

Chris and Dustin share a look between each other before Chris sighs and nods to Eduardo, and steers Dustin away from him and Mark.

Silence ensues while Mark stares defiantly away.


“Can we go somewhere more private?” he asks.


Mark turns and walks in a different direction. Eduardo follows him to empty office.

It is here where Eduardo slowly grabs Mark’s wrist that goes stiff at the contact. “Mark,” he says again. “Please listen to what I have to say.”

“I don’t think it’s a wise idea for us to be talking. You said everything you needed to at the depositions or is there another important matter you wish to discuss?” Mark quips out bitingly.

Eduardo bites down the mounting frustration he feels to respond, “I just wanted to tell you I’m sorry, alright? I’m sorry.”

Mark’s eyes seem to soften a few moments before he raises his brow. “Oh?”

He had forgotten that his patience was still stretched thin especially whenever he’s around Mark.

He takes a couple of breaths. “Yes, I’m sorry. I’m sorry for breaking your laptop five years ago, but it felt great at the time. I think we were both dicks. You shouldn’t have cut me out behind my back. I deserved my shares and I helped create Facebook. I’m sorry for blaming you for what happened. I just realized that I’m to blame as well because I didn’t listen to your plans. Freezing the account was a childish thing to do. It might’ve been selfish to make that decision on my own. I know now that it could have seriously jeopardized the company. I didn’t need to do what I did…” Eduardo trails off. “I made myself unreliable and maybe I provoked you into diluting my shares. I don’t know.”

“Okay, Wardo. I get it. I needed to hear that.” Mark answers. He seems a little uncomfortable before he goes, “I shouldn’t have hurt you. You weren’t the right CFO for Facebook but what I did was wrong. I didn’t listen to you either.”

“We were both stubborn and stupid.”

“Yes,” Mark agrees.


Eduardo feels lighter than he’s felt in a long time, like an invisible burden is suddenly removed from his mind.

“Alright, then we should probably get back to the meeting,” he suggests not knowing what say next.

Mark nods.


They begin walking back to the conference room together.


At the door, Eduardo gathers his courage enough to ask, “Do you think we could get coffee after the meeting is over?”

Mark smiles, “Yeah, we should.”

Eduardo hopes.

OP here again (geez, maybe I should just de-anon :P)

This is great! I could feel all the conflicting impulses in Eduardo, and I'm almost proud of him that he found the guts to be the first one to apologize and make things right. And I love that Mark gave him a chance without giving him a hard time (he's probably been pining after Wardo, too).

Great job, thank you :D

Re: [Fill 1] Again (2/2)

Hey OP, I'm really glad that you like this. It's such a compliment to hear that you could Eduardo's conflicts and how you felt almost proud of him for apologizing :) yep, Mark's been silently pining if still his snark usual self ;D

I wonder who you are, lol.

Thanks and you're welcome. :DD

Re: [Fill 1] Again (2/2)

Well, contrary to what was suggested in the comments above, it's just me :P

Re: [Fill 1] Again (2/2)

Nice of you to de-anon. :)
